This post will forego legal analysis or current news in favor of telling you a bit about my practice and how I handle auto accident cases. The Rhode Island Supreme Court does not certify any attorney in a particular practice area of law, but if you compare my office versus many other auto accident law firms, I think you will see that my office is the best choice to aggressively represent your case.
Is your attorney personally handling your case? Was your first interview conducted by a secretary or paralegal, or by the attorney whose name is on the door? When you call in to the office with questions, do you speak to your attorney or his secretary? Is it possible that you are being represented by someone you have not even met?I personally handle all of my cases from beginning to end. I will be the person conducting the interview at the beginning of the case, helping you throughout the process and negotiating an excellent settlement on your behalf.
Have you worked with an attorney before and found it impossible to get your attorney on the phone? One of the most common complaints I hear from clients of mine who worked with other attorneys in the past, is that they could never get their attorney on the phone. When you are hurt and out of work you need answers right away and you want to know that the person representing you actually cares that you are having difficulty. Things are done much differently at my office! My clients have my personal cell phone number and I ALWAYS return missed calls within 24 hours!
Have you met with an attorney and been told that they do not handle the property damage to your vehicle? Many personal injury attorneys refuse to handle the property damage portion of a claim because it is a significant amount of work, and lawyers do not take a percentage of the property damage settlement. Therefore, if an attorney can not profit from your property damage, they want nothing to do with it. I think this is ridiculous. You were in ONE accident and have an injury claim AND a property damage claim. Either your attorney represents you or they do not. My office will help you through the property damage portion of your claim, including rentals, total losses, and more.
Are other attorneys willing to fight for your case? Some auto accident law firms have so many clients that their profit comes from settling hundreds of cases, and not necessarily from obtaining the best results. Make sure that your attorney is giving sufficient attention to your individual case and is willing to file a lawsuit, if necessary, to obtain the money that you deserve.
Why else should you hire the law office of Joseph Lamy? I have worked for insurance companies and insurance defense law firms, and I have also worked for one of the most successful personal injury firms in New England. I have experience on both sides of a personal injury case and this allows me to really see the strengths and weaknesses of your claim. With that knowledge comes better preparation and with better preparation comes better results!
My clients often refer family and friends to my office because they have obtained great results and have the utmost confidence in my firm. I invite you to learn more about me and my law practice at my website. If you have been injured in any kind of accident, contact our office for a free consultation and find out why my practice is growing at an incredible pace!
This blog post is likely to be considered an advertisement. The Rhode Island Supreme Court does not recognize or certify any attorney as an expert in a particular practice of law. I have offered this information to help you determine who to hire following an auto accident, but there are a number of factors that should be considered before signing with any particular law firm.
